Spanish exploration of northern Australia – Steve Hutcheon
The curiosity of Member Steve Hutcheon – who has an eclectic interest in Queensland’s early explorers and naturalists – was recently piqued upon learning of a letter by one J.E. Richter in The Sydney Morning Herald of 22 June 1872, page 7d, referring to Spanish exploration of northern Australia between 1640 and 1650. Steve Hutcheon is seeking contact from anyone who might have some knowledge of these voyages or is familiar with the Spanish archives. Read more on his Members’ Interest page.
